To Infinity And Beyond!
 
Recall that the Twin Prime Conjecture states that there are infinitely many primes p and q such that | p - q | = 2.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin_prime

This has been, to put it mildly, EXTREMELY HARD to prove. An equivalent statement is that there are infinitely many primes p and q such that | p - q | < 3, and so one could try to arrive at a weaker statement, where 3 is replaced by some number N.

Conjecture(N): There are infinitely many primes p and q such that | p - q | < N.

Note that this is very non-obvious, because it may be that the prime numbers get more and more spaced out as they get larger, in the sense that the minimum distance between primes in [M,∞) grows as M grows. We do know that this spacing grows at most linearly, by Bertrand's posulate:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertrand's_postulate

which states that given any prime p there is another prime p' < 2p - 2. In fact, Erdős improved this to a logarithmic bound: for any prime p there is a prime p' < p + (c ln p). The constant c has been creeping down over the decades, and we now know, as of 2005, that c can be chosen to be as small as possible (see the Wikipedia page on twin primes linked above). However, this doesn't help with the Twin Prime Conjecture, which wants to know if we can push N in Conjecture(N) down to 3 (question for the experts: why is this so?).

So, according to Peter Woit, who got a group email from Yau, there is a seminar at Harvard later today (3pm local time) by Yitang (Tom) Zhang of U New Hampshire called "Bounded gaps between primes" (this isn't listed on the Harvard website).

http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=5865

He claims to have a proof of Conjecture(70 000 000), which would be very big news.

If anyone is there, please report back.

Odd Odds On Odds Above 5
 
Busy day in analytic number theory; Harald Helfgott has complemented his previous paper http://arxiv.org/abs/1205.5252 (obtaining minor arc estimates for the odd Goldbach problem) with major arc estimates, thus finally obtaining an unconditional proof of the odd Goldbach conjecture that every odd number greater than five is the sum of three primes.  (This improves upon a result of mine from last year http://terrytao.wordpress.com/2012/02/01/every-odd-integer-larger-than-1-is-the-sum-of-at-most-five-primes/ showing that such numbers are the sum of five or fewer primes, though at the cost of a significantly lengthier argument.) As with virtually all successful partial results on the Goldbach problem, the argument proceeds by the Hardy-Littlewood-Vinogradov circle method; the challenge is to make all the estimates completely effective and to optimise all parameters (which, among other things, requires a certain amount of computer-assisted computation).

You could always ask the NSA.
 
Is this the public key for Edward Snowden? There is a key for an address at boozallen.com, created 2013-03-24, which lines up with the amount of time that everyone says he worked there.
